    Nice hotel, too many smokers
    Really nice hotel close to the beach. Complex has excellent swimming pool area and the best rooms have views looking over this area. Unfortunately the hotel seems to have become a mecca for the smoking set as most of the guests were smokers. This made it rather difficult sitting out on our deck at night, as all our neighbours up, down and sideways were smoking on their decks. To be fair, there’s a lot of smokers in Spain & Portugal.

    What's not to like?
    Lovely quiet adults only hotel. Only stayed 2 days but found it fabulous. Staff friendly, helpful and attentive. Would recommend if you want a relaxed chilled break. Bonus is it's close to a great beach too although I am a poolside person it is good to know it's a very short walk to the sea. Rooms had tea making facilities and small fridge....excellent for a tea person like myself. All in all could not fault this little piece of paradise!

    Emplacement exceptionnel
    Bon hôtel. Cuisine excellente. Service compétent. Deux sujets peuvent être discutés : le manque de parking et la literie trop dure pour notre dos. L'électricité est faible par ailleurs, aussi bien dans les couloirs qu'au restaurant. On aime bien voir ce que l'on a dans nos assiettes. Mais je recommanderai cet hôtel. L'ensemble est bien. Le quartier est calme pour se reposer.
